My sister got married just a few hours ago.

I love her and my new brother.

I just wanted to say their happiness makes me happy and I wish them all the best in all that is to come.

Bisous (I know, it's not Spanish, but it's what I'm used to).

PS: I love you. ;)

a few answers

Yes, yes, I'm pregnant.

22 weeks along (due date is 13 December).

A boy.

As for names, we want to meet and greet the little fellow first. Of course, that doesn't mean we don't have names in mind. We're just not for certain yet, and we know we don't have to be, so we're not stressing. We're pretty sure about a few, though; we probably won't name him Joseph or Hyrum or John Jacob Jingleheimer.

Also, I finally got around to a little post-Israel update: post and pictures.

Happy Sabbath!

getting back

A year ago I was spending as much time as I could rock climbing in Rock Canyon. Now I've got a belly full of a growing baby and my daily exercise sometimes includes a walk from my parents' house to Rock Canyon's parking lot drinking fountain. How's that for a change? It seems big to me. But it's also good. Yes, I miss flying down roads on my bike, but now I get to enjoy a different season in my life. All the baby dreams I've ever had are finally coming true. It's such a thrill to feel the little guy move inside me.

Rew and I have a goal to write up some posts about our time together in Israel. I hope we can follow through and actually get it done. Until then, I'll leave you with a few choice pictures:

Wouldn't you love your address to be such?

Rew with Nadim. Too cute, the both of them.

This was just too ugly to not put up. Me and my touring fanny pack and headphones.
